The 1906 San Francisco Earthquake

At almost precisely 5:12 a.m., local time, a foreshock occurred with sufficient force it was felt widely throughout the San Francisco Bay area. The great earthquake broke loose some 20 to 25 seconds later, with an epicenter near San Francisco. Violent shocks punctuated the strong shaking which lasted nearly 60 seconds. Sources report that the earthquake was felt from as far north as Oregon to south of Los Angeles and inland as far as central Nevada.

HARVARD WINS 29-29! - Saturday, November 23, 1968 Both Harvard and Yale brought undefeated 8-0 records into “The Game”. Yale held a seemingly insurmountable lead, 29-13 with 3:30 remaining in the fourth quarter. In those final minutes, Harvard was able to score cutting the Yale lead to 29-21, and with 42 seconds remaining, Harvard recovered an onside kick, and quarterback Frank Champi was able to orchestrate a drive downfield into the end zone for a touchdown. He then threw a strike to Pete Varney to complete the two-point conversion, and, with time expiring, Harvard tied the game at 29. Both Harvard and Yale finish with identical 8-0-1 records.

Creedence Clearwater Revival performs LIVE at Woodstock | 1969
WOODSTOCK ROCKS Bethel, New York August 15 – 17, 1969 The largest rock concert ever, arrived and left, and we will never be the same again. The police estimated that there were a million people on the road trying to get to the festival. Controlling the overwhelming crowd was next to impossible. The festival actually took place on Max Yasgur's farm about fifty miles away. Woodstock was the original location since that was where Bob Dylan was currently residing. There were no clear headliners; the lineup included: Crosby Stills Nash and Young, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Band, Jefferson Airplane, The Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Santana, The Who, Joan Baez, Arlo Guthrie, Richie Havens, Sly and the Family Stone, Blood, Sweat and Tears, Sha-Na-Na, Joe Cocker, Jimi Hendrix, and many more. Jimi Hendrix’s guitar solo of the "Star Spangled Banner" might be the most memorable musical event of the festival. Woodstock was a peaceful gathering for one million young citizens who were virtually left on their own and discovered the words Sharing, Helping, Consideration, and Respect. Thousands left the Woodstock event with a totally different outlook on life, and rock music moved to the forefront of American pop culture.
